Hi. We are heading to SoBe for a few days at the end of the month.. Our plan is to stay at a nice hotel( the National) but eat at cheap or moderate places.. So my question is whats your favorite
restaurants that fit that bill? Breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    You should know there is miami spice now so even expensive restaurants fit the moderate bill through the end of september.

    Some cheap/moderate places in no particular order:
    My Ceviche -- MUST TRY
    Shake Shack
    El Chalan
    Burger & Beer Joint
    Cha Cha Cha
    Puerto Sagua
    A la Folie
    Jimmy'z Kitchen
    Joes takeaway has some bargains (fried chicken)
    Milos has a $20 lunch
    Bernies La Cafe

      Wow. Thanks for the heads up about "Spice"
      So are there any places on the Spice list that you think I should try?

        Pubbelly has an excellent value meal and is a great restaurant. The Dutch is great in general. Macchialina has their amazing pork chop on their menu - so I would do that too.

          Pubbelly's miami spice is a steal.

          I would add:
          La Sandwicherie
          Miss Saigon
          La Ventana (Colombian)
          Go-Go (empanadas and salads)

            From 5-8 Mon to Fri Piola Pizza is doing their whole pizza menu for 7,8, or 9 dollars (based on the time)...an awesome value. They claim they're even doing the deal for to go food also.
